Insects of New Orleans Gallery

Insects of New Orleans Gallery

Insects have been pivotal to the history of New Orleans. Learn how they influenced the city's heritage in the Termidor Termite Defense Insects of New Orleans Gallery. In many ways, the character of this special place was built on bugs! Pesky (and at one time, lethal) mosquitoes, beautiful pink katydids, quick moving cockroaches, amorous and ubiquitous love bugs—visitors see them all and more in a French Quarter setting.
